7 upcoming yoga retreats in South Africa

Yoga retreats are a wonderful way to prioritise the rest and healing that every mind and body needs. Often, these kinds of retreats are hosted in peaceful spaces that inspire and connect us with our surroundings. It’s moving on your mat with the Western Cape’s Wineland valleys as a backdrop, getting back to basics with breath work in the quiet of the bush, or lapping up natural beauty with every stretch in the serenity of Stanford.

Sound like a dream? There are several upcoming yoga retreats taking place in South Africa from March to May. Take your pick:
